The Caliber Challenge, is a cross triathlon that normally takes place in the Netherlands every year attracting over 200 participants …and this year it will happen virtually! Caliber has made the event accessible to everyone globally, so from the USA to Canada, to India you can join us in the fun!
At Caliber we believe that a healthy body is a healthy mind and that finding the right work-life balance is key to keeping motivation high and happiness at the forefront of what you do. The virtual challenge will run throughout July from July 1st – July 31st and despite this being less of a competition, there will still be a leaderboard!
What does this mean?
This means that no matter where you are in the world you can partake in the 1/4 or 1/8 Cross Triathlon Challenge. All you need is the sports App Strava, and we can record your activity adding it to our 2020 leaderboard. Categories are the same as in previous years and can be seen below (you can choose to enter some segments or all segments).

How can I join?
You must have the sports app Strava to participate (this app is free to download). Once you have the basic free account on Strava, you must join the triathlon segment you wish to partake in through Challenge Hound. Each part of the triathlon has been set up as an individual challenge on Challenge Hound. This is so you can choose if you want to swim, bike and run or only run.

When does it start?
From July 1st - July 31st
Normally the challenge would take place on a single day but to make it accessible to everyone, we allow you the full month of July to complete any and all the events e.g. swim, run, cycle. To be clear, you can complete the segments of the triathlon on different days to suit you.
Is there a cost?
Joining this challenge is free for everyone!
